The self contained suite of two rooms and wet room is on the ground floor overlooking the rear garden.
The full size attic is floored and there is an exceptionally large basement offering substantial development potential (e.g. for both a cinema and gym/spa suite) besides incorporating the existing wine cellar, library, laundry room and integral garage.
The garden has recently been substantially re-landscaped to include the creation of a sheltered sun terrace.
Designed by W. J Anderson in 1891, this distinctive B-Listed sandstone villa is rooted in Scots Baronial architecture with European influences. Its high structural quality embraces definitively post-Victorian proportions and the individual character of each room; most of its original features are retained, including six parquet floors. It is a spacious yet compact family residence, well maintained and well suited to entertaining.
Built for David Mason, later Lord Provost and Lord Lieutenant of Glasgow, Balmory is unique not only in the Conservation Area of West Pollokshields, but is the only villa designed by the prestigious W.J Anderson, then Director of the Department of Architecture at the Glasgow School of Art.
A house that has rarely changed hands.
